Registration and Logistics



The two-day event is free and open to everyone. Registration is required for all who plan to participate.

Registration is now closed.

Travel and Parking

Engineering Discovery Days exhibits are located on the University of Washington campus, near Loew Hall. To help you find your way, download a printable campus map.

See UW Commuter Services for transportation information, including bus service, light rail service, directions, and parking details. Parking information for school buses will be provided closer to the event date.


Cars can park in the E-1 or E-18 parking lots. See the campus map and driving directions. The fee for car parking is $6.00, paid via the Digital Pay machines in E-18 or at the gate house in E-1 (Visa/Mastercard accepted). You will need to provide your license plate number if paying at the machine. Bus parking is free.

Look for the welcome booth in the parking lot, as well as one outside of Loew Hall on campus. Please stop by and pick up a program. The program lists the exhibits and locations, and also includes a map.

Bus Parking

Bus parking is for registered buses only. Please drop off and park according to your assignment unless otherwise pre-arranged.

If you are NOT parking on campus, the drop-off and pick-up location for buses is the E-18 parking lot; please view the parking map for directions. Although this is the same location as bus parking, you may not park your bus if you did not register your bus during Discovery Days registration.

Disability Parking

If you need special arrangements, please contact UW Transportation Services at 206-616-8710 or

Eating on Campus

You are encouraged to bring your own picnic or sack lunch and enjoy plenty of indoor and outdoor eating spots.

Food is available for purchase at several locations, although the lines are often long.

Lost & Found

Any items found by or turned in to Discovery Days volunteers will be brought to the HUB Lost & Found at the front desk of the the Husky Union Building (HUB). Please check there if you have lost something.
